Why the heck do my thoughts keep circling such horrifying scenes,

I guess I am fixated by thoughts of bloody escape,

Though suicide only traps family and friends with no means,

To understand what happened with mouth agape,

He was so happy like optimism personified in jeans,

So do something wrenched like an ape,

I guess the uncontrollable images of death routines,

That would persist to flood his his mind like a repeating tape,

Bipolar mood disorder or just an fixation born of life changing diagnosis,

I don’t want these images playing in my are mind like rape,

I just hope optimism can end these never ending routines …
